Settling before Knowing how badly you are Hurt
If you were seriously hurt and someone else caused the crash, the personal injury compensation you receive should cover all related medical costs – past and future. The compensation may also cover lost income, pain and suffering and emotional distress related to the crash. You need to know how badly you were hurt to understand what your compensation should total. If it turns out your injuries are more serious than you first thought, you cannot recover more money once your case has been resolved.
